BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
A story of youthful misadventure set against the backdrop of a lawless border terrain during the last gasps of the Irish boom – ‘Black Ice’ charts the story of Alice as she delves into the rumbling world of local boy- racers.
Middle class Alice is seduced by the allure of Jimmy’s slick, black, Nissan Skyline. Racing, dicing, drifting together on the winding back roads, Alice and Jimmy dream of escaping their provincial neighbourhood. However, Jimmy doesn’t believe in playing it straight.
He likes the taste of money and he likes to take short-cuts. Despite her brother Tom’s warnings, Jimmy’s criminal behaviour only makes Alice want him more, while the greed that has taken hold of the community is about to claim its price in young lives.
